Full Jaw or Full Mouth
Our ability to change patients’ lives by turning the clock back and giving them back a complete set of perfect teeth, in either jaw or even the full mouth, is one of the most exciting advances in dentistry in recent years.
If you have lost all your teeth in either jaw, then using a similar technique to the one used in replacing several teeth, we can completely replace the full function and appearance of the original teeth. We can even do this where all your teeth have failed or are missing. Throughout this procedure, the greatest care is taken at every stage of consultation, assessment, planning and design before we place the implants, onto which is fitted a full fixed bridge. An economical alternative to this process is to employ the implants to anchor removable dentures. These simply clip onto the implants and although perfectly secure in the mouth, they can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.
Missing all teeth step 1
Missing All Teeth
If you have lost all your teeth in one or both jaws, you can choose a permanently anchored dental implant bridge or a removable prosthesis that is connected to two or more dental implants. This is called an overdenture. This type of overdenture remains in place more firmly than a conventional removable prosthesis. For the most natural looking solution, the permanently anchored dental implant bridge is the answer when the prerequisites are met.
Missing All Teeth Step 2
For a permanently anchored dental implant bridge, several dental implants are installed to form a good foundation. Because the dental implants are anchored in the jawbone, they stimulate the bone tissue and help to maintain healthy bone levels and facial structures.
implants installed for an Overdenture
An overdenture involves installing two or more dental implants that will be used as a secure foundation to attach the prosthesis.
Missing All Teeth Step 3
Abutments and bridge
The abutments are attached to the dental implants and the bridge is fitted in place. All dental work is performed according to your prerequisites and wishes.
Ball and Bar Abutments
For the overdenture, either ball abutments or a small bar between the abutments are used. The prosthesis is fitted with corresponding devices underneath.
Missing All Teeth Step 4
Dental implant bridge in place
The dental implant bridge, or the overdenture, is now in place. It looks and functions like normal teeth. You can now eat whatever you like and laugh without having to worry about the prosthesis falling out.
